Mission

SHARE is a national nonprofit that supports, educates, and empowers women affected by breast or ovarian cancer, with a special focus on medically underserved communities. Our mission is to connect these women with the unique support of survivors and peers, creating a nationwide community where no one has to face breast or ovarian cancer alone. All of our services are provided in both English and Spanish, including national helplines, support groups, expert-led educational programs, clinical trial assistance, community outreach, online communities, corporate education, local advocacy opportunities, caregiver support, and survivor-patient navigation.

SHARE touches lives over 190,000 times each year. Our targeted grassroots outreach programs, LatinaSHARE and SHARE’s Ambassador Program, have made SHARE a recognized leader in culturally competent cancer support for women of color, and our metastatic breast cancer and ovarian cancer initiatives are at the forefront of the advocacy landscape. All of our programs are grounded in the needs and insights of real patients and survivors and are developed in multiple languages to support women of all ages, cultures, and ethnicities to make informed, authentic decisions about their health.
